My Free Patterns

The boxes have been sent!!

Well we came through the horrendous wind storm yesterday in one piece.  This morning I was lucky to accompany my daughters school to the cinema to see Puss in Boots.  It was worth riding in a bus full of rather loud excited children to go and see it.  I love Puss.

Anyway, according to the Royal Mail, today is the last day to send parcels to the USA and hope they get there by Christmas.  So I duly trundled off (so many layers to keep warm now) and sent my presents whizzing away.  Here are a few more I made this week:

For my nephew I made a few bow ties.


For my Aunt, another calorimetry.  Yes, I can't get enough.  And because I love her oh so much, I slapped a big ole' flower on the side.  I think she will like it, I'm half in love with it myself.

I also finished Ryan's Basketweave Scarf, I LOVE it.  I hope he does too.
Sorry about the rubbish picture.  The sun shined in the window and I got excited but it still doesn't look great.  You get the idea though, and I figure I can't win photographing black anyway.


And that's all for me this week, check out these crafty hops:

  4. Beautiful projects :) I love the scarf (and the light through the window probably helps show off the pattern better than usual black yarn pictures anyway!)

    Glad to hear you are doing well after the storm.

  12. The picture of the black scarf is great -- the sun/shadow combination is just right! Very artistic.

  13. I love the big ol' flower on the Calorimetry, it's fabulous and turns an already-awesome pattern into something completely different!

    And that scarf. The texture is making me drooool. Lucky Ryan!
